A quick narrative on things
He prays before a bout, doesn't talk trash, cares about his country. The most attractive thing about Manny is his humility.
Anyway, right now I'm most appreciative of the opportunity to "think in neutral": daffodils have sprung in the backyard, my weeping willow is amazingly growing from only a clipping on my windowsill, I'm a year older and I'm finally shaking off some of the cold from fall and winter... in this transition I'm also spending a bit more time brushing up on literary evaluation as the need to make meaning returns to view - Not in a journal, but in living. It's good to know that the more we read, the more our mental discipline grows. Like gaining momentum in writing papers as the night goes on, I'm also finding focused introspection is getting easier and less nerve-wracking.
